Weber, Hall, Klein all made it as regulars in the NHL with Hutch getting a couple of seasons before returning to the AHL with a pretty nice salary.
Hall is borderline because he's 28 and sitting in the AHL-- don't see how he is a success. Hutchison now counts becuase he's getting overpaid in the AHL too?
Let me phrase it a different way, Weber is our only 2nd rd success story. Sure, there are some fringers and hopefulls, but Weber is the only one making a positive impact in the NHL right now. Unless you consider Klein a solid player right now, then we have two.
